Butch Isacc Cat (or Alley Cat for short) is a Tom and Jerry character. He is a black and white alley cat that’s being a beneficial or harmful living thing to the one and only Tom Cat.


Butch is created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and he first appeared in the short, Baby Puss (1943), where he and his other peers named, Meathead - a red-haired, brown, mangy cat (some say he first appeared in the 1943 short, Sufferin' Cats), Topsy, a small grey kitten.

He is the leader of the Cat Bullies which knocks Tom down and a coarse rival to Tom as well. In the short, Springtime for Tom? (1946), he was known simply as "Dream Boy" (after Jerry's fake letter from Toodles), and he acted as Tom's rival for Toodles' affection.

Butch is not only a love rival to Tom, but a coarse opponent in simple competitions such as sports – for example in Tennis Chumps (some say Tom’s opponent there isn’t really Butch).

In “A Mouse in a House”, Butch did compete with Tom for the catching of Jerry. He and Tom co-operated at their best to catch Jerry. Unfortunately they both failed, making Jerry still the " untouchable one".

However, Butch also appeared in some cartoons as one of Tom's pals or chums as in Saturday Evening Puss, Smarty Cat, and Sleepy-Time Tom, where Butch is leader of Tom's buddies.

Butch also appears in the Tom and Jerry Tales series. In the episode Beach Bully Bingo, he appears in red swimwear. He also appears more muscular, having well trained pecs and stomach muscles. He also flexes his arm muscles and slightly appears to have abs. Some people thinks that this muscular bodybuilder cat who is as strong as Spike isnt the same cat as Butch.



Butch is a black alley cat with black skin and yellow and black eyes.
